Chrissy Teigen fails at boycotting Twitter's new update

President Donald Trump has already gotten the hang of longer tweets

This week, the social media outlet started allowing most users 280 characters for their tweets.

When the expansion was first announced as a test in September, Twitter cited data that showed how users did with the original character limit. As a further blow to all the 140 diehards out there, the company removed the number-based character count from the bottom right of the "compose new Tweet" box and replaced it with a circle. Those people also got more followers, spent more time on the platform and interacted more with other users on the service, the company added. People ended up spending more time editing tweets or didn't send them out at all. How much a single character can convey varies in any given language.

Teigen admitted her defeat and inability to fight the new Twitter update. Others have said they're struggling to think of anything to fill the 280 characters.

The company has been slowly easing restrictions to let people cram more characters into a tweet. In a limited run of 280 character tweets, just 1 percent hit this limit.

Apparently not feeling particularly inspired, Angela Merkel's spokesman said he would remain a man of few words - and few characters - on Twitter.

It should be noted, however, that the new character limit would not be available for all users. However, many of Twitter's 330 million monthly active users were already getting around the limit by linking to longer pieces, taking screenshots of full stories, and sending streams of tweets called tweetstorms to complete thoughts. Only five percent of users went above 140 characters during the test, and only 2 percent ever went north of 190 characters.
